Product Details
To celebrate the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, the Austrian Mint is embarking on an undersea adventure that will show just how fascinating and colorful the underwater world can be.

Coin Highlights:
  • Cupro-Nickel composition.
  • Individual coins are packaged in protective packaging.
  • Mintage of 65,000 coins.
  • Obverse: All 12 of the magical sea creatures in the Luminous Marine Life series are shown in silhouette on the coin’s obverse. Air bubbles up between them and a tail fin disappears beneath the waves to the right.
  • Reverse: A colour-printed blue-ringed octopus is depicted on the coin’s reverse. When the octopus is illuminated with UV light, its blue rings begin to glow and its body changes colour from yellow-brown to green. In the background swim two peacock angelfish. A wide band, reminiscent of a an old-fashioned porthole frames the aquatic scene.
  • Guaranteed by the Austrian Mint.

An UV torch gives off a special type of light that appears to bring the underwater creatures on the coins to life as they change color and glow vividly. Tiny creatures, which only become visible when you shine UV light on them, also appear here and there next to the main characters in the series, adding an element of surprise. As improbable and magical as the sea creatures featured on the coins may seem, they really do exist. Even though some of them live in the perpetual darkness of the deep seas, where no ray of sunlight penetrates, they all have extraordinary luminous qualities. They flash, sparkle and glow and change color when necessary.

The blue-ringed octopus is a brilliant example of how fascinating and colorful the underwater world can be. One of the most intelligent invertebrates, this amazing animal is not only smart but also highly toxic. If it feels threatened its rings illuminate several times per second. This is exactly what it does on the first coin in the Luminous Marine Life series. You will be amazed.
